In the heart of Sonoma Valley, nestled among the vineyards, emerges an architectural showpiece known throughout the world as the “Castle.” The impressive edifice was designed by founder and winemaker, Steve Ledson. The winery consistently produces highly coveted, small-lot handcrafted wines scoring in the mid-’90s and above, showcasing the absolute best Sonoma County has to offer. The winemaking philosophy is, “everything begins in the vineyard.” Steve chooses quality over quantity, only selects the best grapes, and will reject fruit if it doesn’t meet his approval.

As one of the most important award-winning wineries in the region, Ledson Winery & Vineyards offers several wine tasting experiences by appointment. Guest can select a Classic or Winemaker Tasting at one of three separate tasting bars or a Private Wine Tasting in a personal tasting suite hosted by one of Steve’s personally trained winemaker assistants. Reservations can be made online, by calling 707.537.3823 or by sending an email to tastings@ledson.com

The Gourmet Marketplace offers a great selection of local and unique cheeses, meats, fresh sandwiches, and salads, plus many Ledson delicacies, such as flavored mustards, olive oils, and wine-infused chocolate sauces. After the tasting, many decide to enjoy a delicious picnic in the majestic Oak Grove.

Wines are only available at the winery, through the wine club, or online.
